Monster Jam® is coming to Camping World Stadium this Saturday. January 20th. But you won’t need to wait until then, because they will be on display in Orlando today (January 18,2018). For fans, it’s a chance to see and take pictures with seven of the show’s biggest stars, as well as get up close and personal with these giant monster trucks.
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, Monster Jam trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air.
My personal favorite is the Grave Digger. Did you know there are actually 34 versions of Grave Digger? The numbers go up to 35, but version 13 was skipped due to superstition. It also celebrates it’s 36th birthday this year!
